Why in Japan???

Aquaculture has a very long history in Japan, beginning with nori seaweed culture in the 16th century. The artificial feeding of marine species was said to initiate in 1927 with yellowtail in Kagawa Prefecture. The aquaculture of yellowtail was suspended in World War II, but had come back in the decade following the War. And new aquaculture technologies were gradually applied to an increasing number of species. At present, it is said that about 30 species are cultivated in Japan; a part of those comprise most of the domestic production and so on. So The Aquaculture Summit 2017 take a step to educates consumers about the future prospective of aquaculture and fishing and risk management and we aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results.

Sessions/ Tracks

Track 1: Marine Fishery, Aquaculture and Living Resources

The Specialty Marine Fisheries, Aquaculture and Living Resources seeks critically engaged scientific studies which help analyze a country's, a region's and a farming sector’s capacities and the perspectives of different stakeholders on the development and management of such common pool resources. In particular, we welcome contributions that take basic fisheries and aquaculture research further into more holistic analyses incorporating environmental, including biodiversity, climate change, pollution and resource perspectives, and technological and economic conditions, but also the social dynamics that might shape and/or result from them. Periodically, calls for contributions to special issues called research topics will be organized by locality, and will include synthesis papers that objectively present different views or ‘sides’ of the coin.

Track 2: Fishery Management

Fisheries management involves fisheries science for the protection of the fishery resources so sustainable exploitation is possible. Modern fisheries management is mostly refers governmental system of appropriate management rules based on defined objectives and a mix of management means to implement the rules, which are put in place by a system of monitoring control and surveillance .The objectives is to maintain the target species at or above the levels necessary to ensure their continued productivity. Maintain the target species at or above the levels necessary to ensure their continued productivity. For attaining more profit. prohibiting devices such as bows and arrows, and spears, or firearms .prohibiting nets. Setting minimum mesh sizes. The average potential catch of a vessel in the fleet (vessel and crew size, gear, electronic gear and other physical "inputs".

Track 3: Coastal and Marine Aquaculture in Climate Change

However, coastal and marine aquaculture is more vulnerable than inland freshwater aquaculture in terms of climate change. Coastal and marine aquaculture has been accompanied by recent concerns over changing environment. Different climatic variables, including coastal flooding, cyclones, global warming, ocean acidification, rainfall variation, salinity, sea level rise, sea surface temperature, and tidal surges could affect fish production from coastal and marine environment. Fish are highly sensitive to ecological conditions and changes in coastal and marine ecosystems could have severe effects on their survival, growth, and production. Changes in climatic conditions could have detrimental effects on fish reproduction, resulting in an overall loss of quality fry production. Parasite infestations and disease outbreaks in coastal and marine aquaculture could increase due to changes in environmental conditions because of increase transmission opportunity. Overall, the potential impacts of climate change on coastal aquaculture and mariculture could have severe consequences for future fish production. In addition, fish farming households in coastal communities are highly vulnerable to climate change due to high population density, poor socioeconomic conditions, and low adaptive capacity.

Track 4: Scientific Advices to Fisheries Policy

This Science Advisory Report (SAR) provides advice to policy and management primarily regarding scientifically significant terms in the amended Fisheries Act (2012). In respect of commercial, recreational or Aboriginal (CRA) fisheries, policy-makers sought scientific definitions for “the sustainability and ongoing productivity”, the “fish that support” such CRA fisheries, and “the contribution of the relevant fish”. The scientific advice provided is organized accordingly. Research document(s) will include the characterization of the species to protect, of the environment and of the stressor being examined, as well as current practices used to mitigate the impacts of the stressor on fish and the environment. The risk assessment analyses, conclusions and recommendations will be published as a Science Advisory Report and will include associated uncertainties, identification of knowledge gaps and proposed mitigation options and subsequent estimated effects on the risk outcome. Aquaculture environmental risk assessments may be subject to a cyclical review of advice that may be triggered by, for example, a regulatory change, new technologies, new research findings, or environmental changes

Track 5: The Role of Fish in Improving Nutrition and Health Outcomes

Fish contains higher levels of nutrients including calcium, zinc, iron, and vitamin A than normally are available in larger fish. Fish is also an important source of vitamin B12, which is only found naturally in animal source foods and plays an important role in the function of the brain and nervous system. Fish also contains a factor, sometimes called the “meat factor”, which enables greater absorption of micronutrients from other parts of the diet. Increasing the impact of fish on human nutrition in a food system changing from wild to farmed production systems represents a special challenge and opportunity for aquaculture, with more “nutrition sensitive” approaches required. Whilst it can be argued that increasing supplies of a nutrient rich product – fish – is in itself a nutrition-sensitive action, there are further positive measures that can be taken to secure improved nutritional outcomes from aquaculture.

Track 6: A Greener Aquaculture

Green growth policies in relation to fisheries, aquaculture production and trade will, depending on the conditions of production, have to address different challenges and opportunities, although there are also a number of common threads. Hence, when discussing the issues, I will provide different discussions for the two different production processes, but treat them together after the fish has come out of the water through the value chain on its way to the final market and the consumer. This will allow identification of the key challenges in the different sectors, and give the necessary background for the discussion on green growth policies.

Track 7: Feeding and Feed Management of Asian Major Aquatic Animals

In the medium term, increased output is likely to require expansion in new environments, further intensification and efficiency gains for more sustainable and cost-effective production. The trend towards enhanced intensive systems with key monocultures remains strong and, at least for the foreseeable future, will be a significant contributor to future supplies. Dependence on external feeds (including fish), water and energy are key issues. Some new species will enter production and policies that support the reduction of resource footprints and improve integration could lead to new developments as well as reversing decline in some more traditional systems.  It is very diverse and, contrary to many perceptions, dominated by shellfish and herbivorous and omnivorous pond fish either entirely or partly utilizing natural productivity. The rapid growth in the production of carnivorous species such as salmon, shrimp and catfish has been driven by globalizing trade and favorable economics of larger scale intensive farming. Most aquaculture systems rely on low/uncoated environmental goods and services, so a critical issue for the future is whether these are brought into company accounts and the consequent effects this would have on production economics. Failing that, increased competition for natural resources will force governments to allocate strategically or leave the market to determine their use depending on activities that can extract the highest value. Further uncertainties include the impact of climate change, future fisheries supplies (for competition and feed supply), and practical limits in terms of scale and in the economics of integration and the development and acceptability of new bio-engineering technologies.

Track 8: Aquaculture Developments

The prime goal of aquaculture development is to overcome the sectorial and intergovernmental fragmentation of resources management efforts and to develop institutional mechanisms for effective coordination among various sectors active in the ecosystems in which aquaculture operates and between the various levels of government. About 567 aquatic species are currently farmed all over the world, representing a wealth of genetic diversity both within and among species. It is practiced by both some of the poorest farmers in developing countries and by multinational companies.  It was identified as a sector full of promise for expanding exports and for adding to foreign exchange. The sector has more than fulfilled its promise and has more in store. This paper gives an overview of the role and development of fisheries in general and aquaculture in particular in India. Growth, sources of growth, contribution to national gross domestic product, impact on rural economy, socio economic impacts, generation of backward linkages, and export growth of coastal aquaculture in terms of composition, direction and penetration are reviewed. The paper concludes on an optimistic note for development of coastal aquaculture in the country with the streamlining of policy measures for production and marketing.

Track 9: Fish nutrition and Aquaculture Diets

For most fish, feeding twice a day is sufficient – at about 10 AM and 4 PM. Earlier than 10 am in the morning, the water is a bit cold and oxygen levels are low so this is not a good time feed the fish If you feed at close to the same time and at the same place in the pond every day, the fish will learn to come for the feed. Recommended feeding rates for tilapia or tilapia/ clarias polyculture .The food must contain carbohydrate, protein, vitamins, minerals,ash, crude fibre, crude protein , energy, specific amino acids. They must increase the productivity and improvement in the health of fish.

Track 10: Asian countries fish feed technology

In terms of production volume, aquaculture is highly concentrated in 12 leading countries, whose 1998 aquaculture production, excluding aquatic plants, accounted for 90 percent of the total volume produced during that year and 78.9 percent of total value. In the 1998 ranking, seven countries of Asia came first, followed by the United States and two countries of Europe. As the top aquaculture producer, China has maintained an impressive lead over the second highest producer, India: China’s production is more than ten times greater than India’s. Aquaculture production in China has gone beyond capture fishery production. With 6 045 million tonnes of fish, crustaceans and molluscs produced in 1989, China took a six-fold lead over the second place, a margin which had increased to 10.2-fold by 1998. Closer examination should reveal how China and India have been quite successful in aquaculture.

Track 11: FISH DISEASE

The fish is said to be diseased when black patches are seen in the skin of the fish. Initially the patches remains white but their color changes at chronic condition. The skin comes out and fish get injured. The causative agents like fungi, bacteria, viruses, physical ailments, some parasites are responsible for the disease. Some examples of diseases are- Gill disease, Ick, Dropsy, Fin root, Pop eye etc. Treatment of the fish involves three steps like Identification of the diseased fish, Setting up a hospital tank, Treating the alien fish. The drugs used for the treatment are MYCOFIX, BIOMIN, LEVABON , BIOSTATIN.

Track 12: National Aquaculture Associations roles towards advanced aquaculture

This has an important role in the food and nutrition of many countries and is particularly significant in integrated rural development.  Can contribute significantly to meeting the demand for animal proteins in developing countries and increase the production of luxury foods. It can also serve as an efficient convener of low-grade fishery products to high quality fish. The employment potential is high and well-managed installations yield favorable returns on investment .Besides contributing to relieve pressure on intensively exploited stocks, aquaculture enables the development of resources within national boundaries. There is considerable potential for stock improvement through artificial recruitment and transplantation in certain areas. Possible adverse effects of aquaculture l development can be eliminated by the adoption of appropriate remedial measures .Although a world-wide survey has not yet been undertaken, it is known that extensive areas are readily available for aquaculture in many developing countries. In 11 countries of Asia alone, about 22 million ha have been identified as potential areas for fish culture. Sites for other types of aquaculture are much more extensive. An increase of up to 10 times in production through aquaculture by the year 2000 has been predicted. Some of the existing misconceptions about aquaculture have acted as constraints to the development of the industry. Due to the lack of adequate planning, financing, and shortage of trained personnel, the existing knowledge is not being fully utilized. Besides better research facilities to fill the gaps in our knowledge, there is an urgent need to evolve suitable development strategies in the framework of national fishery development plans, to achieve targets of production in different countries.

Global Market Segmentation:

 Global aquaculture demand was 69,230 kilo tons in 2013 and is expected to reach 80,400 kilo tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 2.0% from 2014 to 2020. China was largest market for aquaculture, accounting for about 53% of global market share, valued at USD 77,934.8 million in 2013. The market is expected to show rapid growth due to favourable climatic conditions for aqua farming, availability of resources and labour. Asia Pacific (excluding China) was the second largest market for aquaculture with market demand of 17.965.2 kilo tons in 2013, and is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 2.1% from 2014 to 2020 due to ideal climatic conditions and technological innovation in this region. In 2013, fresh water was the largest culture environment for aquaculture with market share of over 60% and is expected to witness swift growth, at an estimated CAGR of 2.2% from 2014 to 2020.

American Aquaculture Market segments:

The United States dominated regional production with 438 000 mt in 1997, valued at US$771 million, while Canadian production of 83 000 mt earned US$322 million. The higher relative earnings for Canadian production reflect the dominance of Atlantic salmon, while channel catfish is the principal species cultured in the United States. In North America, the value of farmed salmon increased from US$82 million in 1988 to US$371 million in 1997, an APR of 18.3. Channel catfish production in the United States increased from 164 000 mt in 1988 to 238 000 mt in 1997, a 45 percent gain at an APR of 4.2. Production of other finfish species includes trout, sturgeon, striped bass, golden shiners and tilapia. Shellfish cultured in the region include American and Pacific cupped oysters, blue mussels, clams, crayfish and shrimp.

Table1: Reported aquaculture production in United States of America (from 1990)

Europe Aquaculture Market segments: Aquaculture in the European Union. European aquaculture producers mainly produce fresh-water fish, salt-water fish and molluscs. They also produce small quantities of crustaceans and seaweed. Producing 1 315 000 tonnes in 2000, European aquaculture accounts for barely 3% of world production, although it tops the list for certain species. Annual production value amounts to EUR 2 500 million. Fish farming can be found in rural areas and peripheral regions dependent on fisheries. In some regions, like Galicia and Brittany, it plays a crucial socio-economic role.The sector suffers from price instability and should be regulated by appropriate legislation at European level. This would help provide stability in areas dependent on fishing and provide them with economic viability and self-sufficiency.The field of aquaculture faces many challenges.In particular, the priority must be to keep the sector economically viable, guarantee food safety and animal welfare, solve environmental problems and stimulate research.

 

Table 2: Evolution of European Aquaculture Production (2005-2016)

Asia pacific aquaculture market segments:

Asia is the home of aquaculture, a practice which dates back to thousands of years. In the course of its development, the nature of aquaculture has become more intricate, intertwining with other food production sectors under the influence of political, social, economic, technological and cultural factors. With advancement of technology, the involvement of more aquatic species and farming practices has become possible, and more choices can be offered to the consumers. Population growth, economic growth and the development of disposable income and higher purchasing power, and social factors such as traditional fish consumption patterns, will shape future demand for fish and fishery products (Westlund, 1995). Issues of sustainability can also change our perception of desirable forms of aquaculture development and management (Roberts and Muir 1995). Under the evolving global trade negotiations and agreements, new ways of aquaculture may have to be adopted, so that the environmental and resource costs of production, as factors of sustainability, are kept within agreed limits. It could become increasingly difficult to pursue the traditional methods of aquaculture where a particular species is produced for a market, based exclusively on prices. Under the World Trade Organization, suppliers would have to satisfy a set of requirements to ensure sustainable development of aquaculture.

Table 3: Composition (in percentage) of aquaculture organisms cultivated by countries in Asia

Middle East aquaculture market segments:  With seven seas surrounding the region, including the Mediterranean, the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and the Arabian Sea, the Middle East is not short of sources for fresh seafood. However, total production in the region amounts to only 2.17% of the total worldwide production. Middle eastern capture fisheries are characterized by a large number of small-scale fishers, with estimates that the small-scale sector provides about 80 to 90% of the total landings.

Table 4: Middle East Aquaculture & Fisheries Production

Why Osaka, Japan..?

Commercial aquaculture production in Japan has developed dramatically since the end of the 2nd World War and today occupies an important place in the fisheries sector. Total aquaculture production in 2003 was estimated at 1 301 437 tonnes, worth US$ 4 199 million (FAO 2005), which corresponds to 22 percent of total national fisheries production and 31 percent of the total value produced in Japan. Marine aquaculture accounts for 96 percent of total aquaculture production and 90 percent of the total value produced. Together with our active role in the analysis of standards for sustainable farming practices, aquaculture market, aquaculture research, aquaculture societies, Japan is the suitable place to all Asian countries to reach Aquaculture Summit 2018, Osaka, Japan is also famous as world’s best tourism spot, So we are committed to place our Aquaculture Summit 2018 in Osaka, Japan.
